Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

New York state of mind

(buy this gorgeous photo here (sans wording)).

One of the only good things about having a husband who travels a lot is that I get to travel with him. A lot. And the insane miles and points we live off of.

So this morning I'm off to New York for a couple nights, narrowly missing the fashion week mayhem.

And New York is one of my favorite places to visit. It's just electric... it's always in motion and colorful and feels special and exciting. At least for me. I've never been sure about living there but I am 100% in love with visiting at regular intervals.

Here's my mini-guide to some of what a 'beauty' person does when in town.

Along with nails, hair, waxing, meeting with PRs and all that other stuff, I will...

Visiting my favorite coffee place here and juice place here.

Stop here, here, here, here, and here and a few others.

See this brand in this gorgeous shop.

Maybe pick a new scent from here.

Perhaps meet up with a brilliant makeup artist friend.

Stop here to pick up some of their skincare, newly launched in the US.

Eat dinner here

Love this series of illustrations a little bit more with each visit.

Try (*gulp*) this.

Stay here so we're close to the Hub's work.

And... breathe.

I think that's all I'll have time for in a 48-hour window. If I don't sleep.
